Thenmaradchchi people express opposition to wind powered electricity generators

The people of the Maravanpulavu Grama officer Division, J/298, have expressed strong opposition against the construction of Wind powered generators, office buildings and access road to the project in their area.

They have appealed to from the Chavakachcheri Prashiya saba to President’s Secretariat  directly and by letter to safeguard their natural resources.

It is learnt the Chunnakam Gas & Electricity Company had purchased several acre of lands paying exorbitant prices in the year 2017 for the purpose of establishing Wind powered power plant.

The people of Maravanpulavu had protested this project even in 2017 and now this problem has exploded into a large crisis reaching up to Police station, Human Rights Commission and President’s Secretariat. It is notable that the protest of the 300 families living in this area have been excluded and a private concern is exploiting the resources of the residents to establish this project.
